Recently published by Red Letter Press, High Voltage Women is the untold story of female electrical trade pioneers who fought for affirmative action at Seattle's publicly owned utility in the 1970s in the face of life-threatening sexism and racism.

Everyone welcome to partake in bi-weekly sessions.
Books available for purchase.

In the third session, participants will discuss Chapters 4 and 5. These chapters reveal how the Electrical Trades Trainees (ETTs) began work at City Light, how management sabotaged the program, and how the undaunted ETTs fought back with discrimination complaints. They provide valuable lessons that we can learn and apply in the present and future.

Tuesday, April 30, 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Thursday, May 2, 4:30 - 6:00 pm

Overall reading circle schedule:
Tuesdays, 7:00 – 8:30 pm, Every other week from April 2 to May 28
